SACRAMENTO: Aerojet, a GenCorp Inc. company, has been awarded a contract with Raytheon Missile Systems to assemble, qualify and produce TOW Bunker
Buster warheads. Aerojet's contract is valued at more than $8 million.
The Tube-launched, Optically Tracked, Wire-guided (TOW) Bunker Buster missile is intended to defeat urban structures and earthen bunkers on the
battlefield. Aerojet's first delivery of the warhead is planned for September of 2006. Explosive loading will be accomplished at Aerojet's Camden,
Ark. facility while final assembly will be conducted at the company's Socorro, N.M. facility.
Intresting, so now they wouldn't neccesarily have to call in an aircraft to demolish under-ground structures and buildings made of hard material.
But I would rather have the missile be wireless, like a joystick guided missile. But intresting either way.
